. this is a manifestation of that ongoing conflict. the united states has been attacking these elements steadily in recent years through the use of drums and the elements are trying to find ways to strike back. a big maybe the timing is interesting because in the aftermath of the raid, pakistan- u.s. relations hit rock bottom. they're starting to improve, so maybe it is trying to rekindle those tensions. >> his id emboldening militants and pakistan? >> there is a dynamic between afghanistan and pakistan. the united states as tried to get some of these elements to negotiate a peace settlement and they have been unwilling to do that. notwithstanding the united states strategy to appeal some of the elements of the violence strategy in the political process, this war continues. >> can you tell us about the location of today's attack? >> is a major pakistan the city. and what makes it a significant is the proximity to the largely under-governed tribal areas. that is where they are based, where the taliban escape to in the aftermath of u.s. and international intervention. it is the remaining safe haven where th
-- of our warriors have been wounded. romney thought of the decision of the president of the united states, we have other countries working with us, nato and afghanistan. the president organized it. all 50 of them said it is time to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. what did romney say? he said, that was a mistake. i have seen these warriors. i have traveled in and out of afghanistan and iraq over 20 times. i have seen these kids -- not kids, i have seen these men and women. i have been in the operating base above the mountains and the valley with six kids getting shot at every single night. cold and people off. i have been out there in those armored humvees, the scorching desert. i wish every american could see what i saw on the strips. they raise their right hand with a recruiter and said, i want to join, knowing almost certainly that they would go to iran or afghanistan. -- iran or afghanistan. this is one of the finest generations in the history of america. they should be recognized. and they are.

with other western nations, including the united states, about their response to the syrian civil war. remember, last month, our president drew a line in the sand saying plans for possible military involvement would change if syria uses or even moves their potentially deadly chemical weapons. president obama's remarks came at height of the election season, of course, that same week, governor romney said fell elected he would send u.s. troops to syria to keep those weapons from falling into the wrong hands. the violence has reportedly reached a new milestone: according to groups in the country, 5,000 people were killed in syria's civil war during the month of august, alone. if true, it is the highest one-month death toll since the crisis started to unfold more than 17 months ago. the chief fox correspondent, jonathan hunt, is in new york city with that report. a new united nations envoy is taking over for kofi annan but he does not sound optimistic. >>jonathan: he does not. he is a well traveled algerian diplomat, who, in fact, brought about an end to the lebanese civil war in 1990. bu

working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
it is going to be. and will the united states and the remainder of the nato forces will be able to achieve the right numbers of afghan security forces in the time that is allotted in order to facilitate that departure as you indicated. so the key question is, does this now put the u.s. departure on to a different time line and that is more of a political discussion than it does the realities on the ground. as you well know, and you have been embedded with these guys before. >> the one thing that they kept talking about is that they complained that the afghans were abandoning their posts, and they complained that they weren't reliable. that, these were, you know, uneducated, but they did not say, these guys are attacking us. and now you have that kind of lack of trust between the two individuals and how do you ever get that back? >> well, you truly have to keep working at it. you are absolutely spot-on. you can get it back. it can be reclaimed, the issue becomes one of trust and counter intuitively what is happening is that through the implementation of some of the new changes is u.s. and n
balance of power. >> rose: nobody wants the united states to do that. >> no, i know that! that's why there's a it will bit of disingenuousness of people saying "what must we do?" a no-fly zone. okay, what happens when the syrians shoot at the no-fly zone. what happens when the russians get involved in it's a problem from hell. it'ser the to believe see what's going on. >> is there any answer in terms of somehow a group of countries getting together, neighbors and others, including iran even though that would be very difficult for everybody to come to some kind so solutions because they have the russians, iranians, americans. >> people would have... >>. >> rose: and arabs. >> and iraq. to the extent that it worked it worked because there was one power there. can you imagine a committee of the iranians, the russians, the chinese. and that's my dilemma with it. i don't know how it's going to end. i think this could burn on in different forms for a long time. charlie, step back, what are we seeing? we're seeing two huge political orders crumbling at once. one is called the european union where
-- looks like it will stay away from the united states. bermuda looks to be in its path. in terms of the wet weather for today, scattered showers will prevail this morning and going into the afternoon a this trend will keep through thursday and we will have a little drying time. but this is what your hour by hour looks like for today. 10, 77 degrees. won't reach 80 until later. and the drier moves in by friday. >>> we will talk about a labor of love on labor day weekend. handy seafood attempted to beat the previous world record to the largest crab cake at the state fair. so they did it. the old record was 253. this year's crab weighed in over 300 pounds. cooking started at 2 in the morning and it was ready by noon. crab cake sandwiches were served and sold for $8 with the proceeds helping 4hers. look at that giant crab cake. >> made national news this week. >>> a father grateful to be home from the battle front -- >> you have to see this great storey. we will take you along for a ride as a dad comes home from afghanistan. >>> thanks for joining us on this labor day morning. these
remarks that he made about the state of the country. when asked on "face the nation," was the united states better off than four years ago, the maryland governor said no. republicans jumped on the commons, but he went on cnn this morning to clarify. >> we are clearly better off as a country, because we are now creating jobs rather than losing them. soledad, we have not recovered all that we lost in the bush recession. that is why we need to continue to move forward. >> o'malley will many speakers at the democratic national convention. many people today are enjoying the labor day holiday with celebrations all across the d.c. metro area. the town greensville posted a 67 annual labor day parade this morning. a little something for everyone to enjoy out there. beauty quee including miss greenbelt, and floats as well. still to come a deer in the deep end of the pool. and hundreds turned out to keep heroes goodbye to a navy seal killed in -- to give my heroes goodbye to an abc killed in afghanistan and made a differenc -- what made a difference in pa >> a suicide attack on the u.s. governm
the president of the united states needs mr. clinton to help him with that narrow sliver of undecided voters, especially women ages 30 to 50 who grew up with bill clinton as sort of their teenage or childhood president. that's important. the second thing is is that bill clinton and hillary clinton need barack obama. they need him to perform strongly and to do well, because if barack obama loses and loses on the scale of a carter, that is very bad for the democratic brand for years to come and that is not helpful to a, perhaps, nominee or presidential candidate hillary clinton. so on many levels, this is -- they are living vicariously off each other and through each other, and as i said to a buddy of mine back stage a minute ago, clearly they are carrying each other's bags now and that's probably not a bad thing for today's politics. >> one of the interesting tidbits in this new yorker story looks at the -- pardon me. one of the interesting tidbits, sorry, i was hearing something in my ear there. one of the interesting tidbits looks at clinton's strategic advice to barack obama. look, you att
promise he'd made to the american people. >> madam speaker, the president of the united states. >> obama decided this was an issue he needed to take on early in his presidency or forfeit it entirely. >> chris, picking up your co commentary there, how much of this fight is still about the president's decision on health care reform? >> well, i think the republicans think it's a bad thing. even though it's something that american presidents have really argued for since the days of teddy roosevelt. certainly all progressives, all of them including harry truman and kennedy and johnsens and going back to both roosevelts. it's something that's always been on the progressive agenda and never been realized. of course conservatives are opposed to it. they were opposed to social security and medicare and medicaid and unemployment composition and child labor laws and minimum wage. i was just reading this book about the young winston churchill in the early part of last century. the politics haven't changed. they haven't changed. it's the same old arguments. predictable opposition to social progress.
people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children. >> yet with all of these successes, republicans are still trotting out the same line of criticism that the president has not been a strong leader on the international stage. >> unfortunately, for four years, for four years, we've drifted away from our proudest traditions of global leadership. traditions that are truly bipartisan. we've let the challenges we face both at home and abroad become much harder to solve. >> joining us now from washington is former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley and foreign policy editor in chief, susan glasser. great to have you both on the program. p.j., i want to start with you. what did it signal to you that romney was completely silent on afghanistan in one of the most sort of significant speeches he's given to date? >> i mean, it certainly was a surprise but one of the reasons he didn't mention it is because ultimately,
to be the top diplomat in the united states. i think that their relationship has evolved to be a very good relationship and you will see it manifest by the remarks wednesday night. and one of the dangers of saying, oh, there's all of the trouble between bill clinton and barack obama and what have you, you see, i think that when we leave charlotte, i expect and hopefully the people saying bill really went to bat for barack obama wednesday night. >> and how is it after thursday that the president accepts the nominations that you have the friday jobs morning and chairman fed ben bernanke to talk about whether or not they will inject more stimulus into the economy and are people going to essentially take a look at those numbers and those speeches looking forward in the next two months? >> well, obviously, that is going to matter and you preferring to have a good jobs number and not a bad jobs number, of course, you do. but we have come into the convention with 8.3% unemployment and they have just finished their convention and the race is tight. knock me over with a feather, that is not a bad p
the decision that the president of the united states, we have 50 allies working with us, naughto and other countries in afghanistan. the president organized them. all 50 of them said it's time to set a date to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. now, what did romney say? he said that was a mistake. host: well, rana from boston, massachusetts, are you sticking with the president in 2012? caller: no. but i still have a statement i want to make, peter. host: we're listening. caller: i have written you e-mails, tweeted you, sent you about 30, 40 e-mails and i know some of my neighbors in the addition where i live have said many -- have sent many, many e-mails, because we've discussed this. we want to know who is this woman that gets on sometimes twice a day and every day, they call from tennessee, she has about 10 different names, she says the name is ann. one day they got her on, it was about 9:15, she said her name was ann, s called right back and somebody called her and she got on again, said her name was marsha. now, i know you all know who it is, so t
